"A lovely little winter get away on a farm. The yurt is unique and well insolated. Kitchen equipment is basic (and from the 70s) but works just fine. Beth is quite helpful the animals are friendly though unless your dog is used to farm animals I strongly recommend keeping them on leash. Also the yurt does smell a bit from the gas fireplace and oven. Overall i found the yurt to be private and romantic and we plan to come back. Oh and is snowed but the streets were well plowed."

"We rented the house primarily as a place to sleep while attending a wedding in nearby Herondale Farms and wound up wishing we had time to just hang around the house and enjoy the property and views. It is wonderfully secluded; no other homes are in view and there. There are woods behind the house and a wonderful large meadow in front. It is the owner's country home and is very warm and personal. Some of the other wedding party stayed in modern houses around Upper Rhoda Pond but they were furnished as rentals and did not have the personal warmth of someone's home. The refrigerator was stocked with the request that we use what we need, replace what we have used up and throw out what was expired. Nice! The house was spotless; the internet did work and that is essential since cell phone reception is nil. There is also a landline for use and the owner considerately provides calling cards for long distance. It took a while to convince the owner to give me the exact location so I could be sure it was the property I viewed on satellite images but seeing how secluded it is I understand why the owner wanted to be sure we were serious renters. The only complaints, that were only from one of my adult sons, was that the beds are very soft, almost like feather beds. My wife loved that!
There are nice artisan stores in Millerton, 20 minutes SE on Hwy 8, a good grocery store, and a nearby Alpaca farm. There are a few stairs so it's not wheel chair friendly but I was on crutches and had no problem. It's a lovely, personal home for well behaved guests!"

"My fiance and I rented this house with two other couples for three nights over New Year's, and we had a great time. It's perfect for a winter getaway. We made a lot of use of the fireplace and hot tub, and we had a nice hike on a nearby trail. We'd definitely like to come back."

"Where can I begin!? We approached Dan with the idea of hosting our wedding at his beautiful home. He was very receptive to the idea and had a lot of suggestions for what we could do. Dan was a pleasure to work with. He let us stop by on several weekends to take measurements and pictures of his property. He contacted the town to make sure everything was squared away as far as any permits required for hosting the event. He provided us with vendor recommendations for pies and party rentals. He also made sure the lawn was mowed, installed a new gate, and planted new flowers that bloomed beautifully on our wedding day.
Now to the house! We stayed from Thursday-Sunday (wedding was on Saturday). The house is immaculate. Kitchen has everything you need with open space to the living room. It has a warm and welcoming feeling where you can just lounge around all day. There are 4 large rooms including the attic which offer a ton of space. Waking up in the morning and taking a walk around his property surrounded by trees was a great feeling. There are a few things nearby: ShopRite, A&P, takeout food options, as well as a short drive to downtown Warwick, NY. Mountain Creek is nearby with skiing in winter and a water park in the summer.
The wedding turned out wonderful. We had a DJ which used the direct power source of the house with no issues. And we laid a 40X40 tent in the yard for the guests and dance floor with a smaller tent to house the food. We also went down to the farm property which was a perfect backdrop for our professional portraits.
To summarize: Dan and his wife are awesome and are super easy to work with. They make you feel as if you knew them your whole life. The house is amazing and the property surrounding it is just as beautiful. All in all, just a great experience we'll never forget. Thank you so much for making it such a memorable time!
Jeanette & Omar"
